Research Interests

Radio astronomical research applied to a wide range of topics. Current interests include: monitoring of Cygnus X-1 and Cygnus X-3 with the AMI telescope; deep low-frequency radio surveys with the Giant Meterwave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in India; various studies of Galactic supernova: remnants (SNRs).
